The Poinsettia is a champagne cocktail, which makes it ideal for holiday parties. It’s light on the alcohol, easy to drink (even for very occasional drinkers) and festive.

Poinsettia Drink Recipe: Champagne, Cointreau, Cranberry Juice

It’s also a wonderful brunch drink, and the cranberry gives it a nice touch of autumn flavors for fall and winter.

Recipe

  • Champagne
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau
  • 3 ounces cranberry juice

Put the Cointreau and cranberry juice in a chilled champagne flute. Stir them and top the rest of the way with champagne.

Harder Version

To make it a little harder, add an ounce of vodka or tequila.

Non-alcoholic version

To avoid alcohol altogether, replace the champagne with ginger ale.
